to echo what supervisor elsbernd said about dan weaver. he is awe inspiring, a legendary neighborhood advocate and he would do wonders on this committee. a little bit about myself. i'm a practicing attorney in san francisco. i live in westwood park. i have a son who is now a sophomore at [speaker not understood] high school just adjacent to the balboa park station. i am also a member of the board of directors of the ocean avenue association, the cbd that mr. weaver is the executive director of. and i'm currently serving as treasurer of the ocean avenue association. i think it's fair to say that ocean avenue corridor has turned a corner. we've seen tremendous improvements in the area and i think now is precisely the time to focus on the balboa park station and all that that can offer to the entire community, city college, [speaker not understood], and all the residents in the area. i bring an open mind and a commitment to service and i would very much like to be a part of this committee. i do notice that i had applied for vacancies 6 and 9. i don't know if they've been fil

talk to shawn elsbernd and he's worked hard on it, but if it is found -- if there are specific places to target whether technical or in personnel we do need to focus on that. as for free rides for youth i am screechish at the idea of just giving away free rides like that. i would like greatly reduced and families and where they need it but a blanket and children grow up and learn that is just something they should expect i do have a problem with that. i do want to help those in need but that isn't the first way to do it. >> all right. thank you. mr. crowley. >> muni moves more than bart. it's the biggest in the united states. for the on time performance it's tough to get around traffic and mitigation but they have a plan afoot and bypass areas that have bus stops on every block and that is one way to improve performance. as far as free muni for kids i support that but in practice we don't have the budget to support it and that's my stance today. thank you. >> okay. >> i took muni to get here tonight. i share a car with my partner so two days a week when he works in the city i get the

. >> supervisor elsbernd. supervisor campos? >> thank you. and again, i was impressed with mr. yorck as well. i think he has pretty impressive background. i do want to ask a question and i don't know if it's appropriate for me to ask this question, but -- i have no way of verifying this information. i don't even know that the information is accurate. but i do think that it is something i need to ask for purposes of vetting the applicant. mr. yorck, i don't know where this information came from exactly, but there was some information given to my office that at some point you had been investigated for animal cruelty and i'm wondering if you can speak to that. >>> where did you hear this? >> this is information that was given to us. i just want to make sure that i -- >>> never, ever, ever heard of it. i mean, i used to have a bird store. like every pet store, you get complaints. but animal cruelty, i don't think so. >> have you been cited at all by the city and county for any issues with the store that you owned? >>> i don't think so. maybe they told me to -- if i had too many finches in a cage
